Telefonica Black being repaired in Rio
While their teammates aboard Telefonica Blue are battling the south Pacific ocean on their way to Cape Horn, Telefonica Black's shore crew is working on the repairs of the damaged hull. If all goes according to schedule, Telefonica Black should be ready by March 24th. The sailing team, led by Olympic champion Fernando Echávarri, will then start training in view of the in-shore race, the fourth one of this edition of the Volvo Ocean Race.
